While Huawei failed to launch a new generation of P-series last year after the 2021 P50 series, the Chinese company seems poised to finally bring the P60 series to market, and rumors of camera-focused flagships are now spinning a bit faster.
As reported by @RODENT950, Huawei has four models of the P60 series in development. The lineup reportedly starts with the budget P60E and also includes the vanilla P60, P60 Pro, and possibly the P60 Ultra. This P60 Ultra looks like a replacement for Plus models like the P40 Pro+ and Mate 40 Pro+. With the emergence of popular Ultra models from the likes of Xiaomi and Samsung, it makes sense to see a shift in branding, especially with rumors that Apple could release the iPhone 15 Ultra this year.
The same leaker also revealed some important camera details for the Huawei P60 and P60 Pro. Presumably, the P60 will feature a triple-camera setup on the back: a 50MP IMX789 as the main camera, a 50MP IMX858 as the ultra-wide camera, and a 16MP IMX351 under the zoom lens. The vanilla model is expected to offer variable aperture technology.
According to @RODENT950, the Huawei P60 Pro supports the 50MP IMX789 – a shame considering the IMX789 is the unimpressive old sensor used in the OnePlus 9 Pro two years ago – and the IMX858. However, it adds an IMX888 to the mix, along with a 64MP OV64B camera, to complete the quad-camera system, which also features “dual-frame variable aperture.”
